    One of My Favorite Shows.

    You would think more people would join this group. I can't wait for season 2.   After the first episode, I was hooked!  I love Buck, suprisingly.  And T's filthy mouth keeps me laughing!

    Half An Hour Is Just Too Short

    Every Wednesday I look forward to watching US of Tara but then it goes so quickly. This week (after the shed burnt down) it seems like everything - held together so finely for all these work - has finally fallen to bits. Once again the sister steps in to hold everything...

    It Reminds Me of My Beautiful Ex-girlfriend.

    C. has Multiples. She'd either find this show comforting or insulting. I fell in love with one of her sides, S...so fast. She didn't come out to me straight away as having Dissociative Identity Disorder, but when I was aware I didn't care. It was a long distance, online...

    Something For Me

    I really enjoy this show. Tonight for some reason the episode felt like it was speaking to me. "I am not your home improvement project" - Tara to Max, while scraping the childish alphabet wallpaper off the bathroom wall. and then a particularly poignant scene...

    Gimme

    There's no spoiler in this story ;) Tonight Tara's therapist met one of her avatars, with Max. After they left, she slumps back into the chair: "****". I suppose not everyone does this, but when I first meet a health professional I am always positive-thinking...

    Anyone Watching Season Three?

    Caught the third episode, I think it was the third, the other night. What a shocker ending.

    New Parts

    I thought it was very brave and accurate to introduce and animal part on US of Tara.I have animal parts (all good parts) as do some other d.i.d.'s I know but Im anxious that it will be too much for the public to deal with at this stage of the show. Id like to know what ppl think...
